  • I dont think Vick got suspended until after he was proven guilty and if I am wrong, then I believe that was wrong to do so.

  • Vick was identified in April 2007 as "the key figure" of an extensive unlawful interstate dogfighting ring operating over a period of five years, leading to massive negative publicity and separate federal and state felony charges and convictions under plea agreements, as well as payment of approximately $1 million for care and rehabilitation of some of the dogs. He has been suspended from play by the NFL since August 2007. In December 2007, he was sentenced to serve a 23 month federal prison term; 3 years of prison time in Virginia on other charges was suspended upon condition of good behavior. With loss of his substantial NFL and product endorsement income, Vick filed for Chapter 11 reorganization bankruptcy protection in July 2008, with liabilities of $20.5 million and assets of $16 million. His bankruptcy case has yet to be resolved.

  • no. not unless he's proven guilty. There are so many horror stories with MANY professional athletes, and sadly, they are still treated like royalty. Dog fighting, drugs, gang fights, vehicular manslaughter, drunk driving, theft, rape, etc...these people still get millions, even from endorsements! gotta love the media!!!

  • Pulease! That girl is crazy! Looking for money and attention. Ben is innocent until proven guilty and I sure don't believe that big teddy bear could do that to any woman. My opinion of course. Go Steelers!!!
